TAST Buttonhole Wheel Stitch
After spending most of the day surfing the net, I felt quite inspired to get straight into this week's TAST. Here is my sample for your consideration. I stitched in a Steff Francis overdyed medium silk thread over some little white clay flat "beads" from an old op-shop necklace. The "flowers" are cut from sequin waste and they are couched down in perle thread with a DMC metallic 3 wrap French Knot in the centre and scattered about. Would make quite a nice little postcard, in fact I might even send it down to the EG for the Postcard Challenge we are collating for the October Festival of Embroidery and Exhibition. Will see how it looks when finished.
